The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) may conduct Open Book Examinations (OBE) for students of Classes 9 to 12 keeping in mind the new National Curriculum Framework released last year. 

The CBSE has proposed a pilot run of open-book tests in a few schools for English, Mathematics and Science for Classes 9 and 10 and English, Mathematics and Biology for Classes 11 and 12 later this year to evaluate the time taken by students to complete such tests and stakeholders’ response.

CBSE is planning to conclude the design and development of the open-book exam pilot by June with the help of Delhi University.
